H2 oh!

A quick hour (or 4, oops) at St Mary's Wetland produced some pleasing images of the calling Hume's. The bird was feeding activley on insects, some of which can be seen on an image above. Toppled with some good conversation with some of Northumberlands regulars, a most pleasant trip was had.

I think there was only one bird today - Hume's. A second "call" heard was someone with an MP3 player on the other side of the bushes!. This bird is quite a bright bird, but not as "rich" as a yellow-brow. There are greyish tones to the crown and mantle. Call was confirmed by several very experienced Northumberland birders.
